At the same time I ordered Abbey Dawn’s Dirty Girl from Amazon.de, I also decided to order a pair of Iron Fist’s wedges from the Lovelace series. Now if you’ve been stalking Iron Fist’s shoe designs like me, you might notice that their design is pretty hardcore and creepy in a cute way. Mismatching, non-symmetrical prints on each shoe and full design that give the shoes a life. Now if you’re me, you might also think that Iron Fist, while really interesting, is not a style that you’d usually wear. Therefore you’d spent most of your time stalking Iron Fist shoes and not buying it.
That’s until I found this Iron Fist Lovelace Wedges* being sold in Amazon for EUR 99.99. It’s expensive. Really, really expensive and seriously outside of my normal shoes budget. But hey, ever since I bought my Coralie DUO boots, I decided to calm my boobs and ordered the shoes.
And here’s what I think about these wedges:
Yes, the heels are high, but seriously, these are a pair of goddamned WEDGES. When I slipped these babies on my feet and tried to walk, all I could feel was this “meh” feeling. I guess because it’s been awhile since I put on wedges, so they don’t hurt. To be honest I was a bit intimidated before I tried the shoes on.
But then again, since it wasn’t so hard to walk in, I guess it won’t be hard partying with these too. It still elongates your legs and you’d still be able dancing like mad! Although for a shoes that costs almost 100 Euro, I actually expected a much, much better quality than these. The design and motif are really good, but to be honest, I think the material is a bit too thin. Also, when I received this, I noticed that there are scratches on the straps. It won’t be visible, but they really bother me.
Now now, I know the scratches are small, but this is an expensive shoes and I spent my money on this. For sure I’d like this to be in good quality. One would expect that the lace design was actually real lace, and that’s not impossible since I also have a pair of T.U.K. shoes that’s covered in lace and they actually cost LESS than these Iron Fist pair.
But what they did was actually print the motive on a canvas shoes, and voila! Brand it fucking EUR 99,99! Yes yes, it’s a rip-off. Yet I still bought it, so I guess in the end it’s still my fault too. But I can’t resist since I like the color and the print.
If only they weren’t a print… *cue deep sigh*
Even though my first experience with Iron Fist is quite unsatisfying, the next shoe on my list is going to be another one (and prolly the last) from Iron Fist Shoes. But this time, it’s going to be a pair of stiletto.
